Call For Entries: Web3D RoundUP @ Web3D 2001 Conference

Web3D RoundUP is an event where top 3D content developers and tools providers demonstrate THEIR latest Web3D technology and applications. In less than an hour and a half, the work of over two dozen world-class developers from all around the globe will be presented to Web3D 2001 conference attendees (see Happenings).

Web3D RoundUP is now inviting content creators and Web3D tools/technology producers to submit demos for juried review. The group is experimenting with a new "video festival" format geared more towards European audiences. Historically, participants received one to five minutes to show off their best. For this show only, they will give everyone the same amount of time: 201 seconds (three minutes, 21 seconds).

Only conference attendees were allowed to submit their work in the past. Now anyone can. Submissions open to all, worldwide. The catch is that submissions from conference attendees stand a slightly better chance of being selected for the RoundUP.
